The Tranquillo, from the specs, looks to be a winner with a quiet fan, not too heavy a weight, and a whopping 5 year warranty, something we don’t normally see, which is why they’re stressing it so. To be entirely honest, having to warranty a heatsink isn’t something you’re likely ever to do. There’s really isn’t much to break, save the fan, which may be cheaper to replace than to mail off. What’s more important here is a company that stands behind its products.
